Kona Isle condo description

Aloha and Welcome to Kona Isle Condos!

Indulge yourself! Stay in a newly refurbished condo (new furniture and sofa in Nov 2013) in one of the best kept complexes in Kona.


We are delighted and very proud to offer a very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped condo located in a property where the grounds are maintained to an exceptional standard. In a non smoking environment we emphasize cleanliness - where else can you be assured of a FRESHLY WASHED BED COMFORTER when you arrive? We are owners who are determined to do all we can to ensure that you have a safe, restful and memorable holiday. And we know our pricing is well below Kona averages for similar quality accommodation.

After a decade of owning a Hawaiian condo rental property, we purchased this second unit at a very good price. Because that price was so reasonable we decided it appropriate to do all we could to make the unit special and offer it at rates below other units of this high quality. We recognize that these are hard economic times and so choose to take this approach because we feel it is best to fill our condo with happy guests who will appreciate just how special Kona Isle is. We are pretty confident that will be the case – our first condo in the same boutique complex had an 92% occupancy rate last year with many of our guests returning for a fourth and fifth time, some for as many as FOURTEEN times! Besides, it is more fun to deal with happy repeat guests. (For the real story, see what over 30 previous guests have said about Kona Isle and how they like the way we maintain our condo. Go to 'Reviews' just above this section and then see our other unit on VRBO - 'Click Here to see All My Rental Listings' just after 'Owner Profile' below.)

Our small (74 unit) complex caters to those who would like to enjoy serenity, a sparkling clean HEATED pool to swim in, beach side sunset dining using BBQs that are cleaned daily, awesome sunsets and yet close to the heart of the Kona vacation experience. I emphasize heated because it is important: most pools go unused in Hawaii. From our experience many visitors tour most of the day and tend to enjoy a relaxing swim in the early evening hours. There is nothing like the experience of lying back in a heated pool and looking up at the moon through palm trees! That is tranquility!

We are proud of how we have refurbished this unit. It is designed to make you feel that you are in Hawaii! The dishes were chosen because they match the decor, the artwork is truly Hawaiian and it matches the new furniture, the bed is really comfortable, there is a new flat screen TV, and best of all; we have the same cleaning staff that we have worked with before and so we know that the unit will be VERY CLEAN - that is so very important to us!

We listen very carefully to our guests and make changes and improvements on our twice a year visit. We have it professionally painted every year, in 2013 we updated the furniture in the living room, replaced the TV with a state of art unit, did our annual towel and linen replacement, did our semi annual deep cleaning ... and much more. You are important to us... we are doing all we can to make your vacation a very special one.

Using the lessons we have learned we focused on making the unit feel like home, not like some sterile hotel room without any character. Bright Hawaiian colors and all a guest might need for a great vacation: two coolers for that beach picnic, quality (Tommy Bahama) beach chairs, snorkel gear and some great Hawaiian CDs to enjoy while you are browsing through the many Hawaiian reference books, planning the next day's experiences. We make sure there is a really comfortable bed for a good night's sleep and a Brita water filter system so your coffee in the morning will be as good as it should be! In addition we make sure that there are most of the basic staples: saran wrap, tin foil, spices, olive oil, vinegar, candles, first aid kits and a fire extinguisher, laundry and dish soap are all there for you - how nice it is to save a lot of money because the basics are all there!!

Just added: FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLING to Canada and the US as well as secure wireless connectivity in the condo.

We take great pride in our unit. With 12 years experience of owning a condo in Hawaii, we believe we have found the perfect combination of all that Hawaii has to offer. It is important to us to provide a very clean, quiet, on-the-ocean holiday experience.

One last point, while some rent the same sized unit allowing 4 guests, we do not. We want you to really enjoy your stay and not be in cramped quarters, so in the fall of 2013 we replaced the pull out sofa with a more comfortable one that does not make into a bed. We do however include a fully equipped Pack 'n Play for any younger guest!

Mahalo for visiting our site. May you enjoy your Hawaiian holiday where ever you choose to stay!

                                  Adjacent to the Kona Isle beachfront is a very unique salt water pool, built for a plantation mansion that occupied the site years ago.

                                   

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: Aloha! We fell in love with Hawaii in the 1990's, when Delana worked part time nursing on Kauai. With vacation rentals so very expensive we felt forced to buy a little condo. It proved to be a wonderful decision! In 2005 we decided that Kona would be a better place for us: it has the least rainfall in the state. During our November 2009 visit (an annual trip to do all the upkeep we do to make our unit special) we purchased a second unit because the prices were so low, We worked hard and refurbished it in a Hawaiian decor that we are certain people will enjoy. We believe we have arrived at the right combination, we really do want you to feel at home! Mahalo, Rod and Delana

                                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Isle:
                                  Kona boasts the least rainfall in the state! There is so much to see and do: from volcanoes to lava heated pools. You can circumnavigate the Island in just over 4 hours including a picnic on a beach near Hilo, the midway point! The Big Island has it all and the true Aloha spirit prevails.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                                  Because Kona Isle is a small 'boutique' 74 unit development with only one bedroom units, neither the pool or BBQ areas are crowded. The BBQ and pool are situated beside the water rather than between the buildings. The result: it is particularly appealing to those who want a quiet and restful holiday. A nightly feature is to BBQ (so close to the water that sometimes you can feel the spray) and then enjoy dining RIGHT AT THE WATER'S EDGE!
